I was planning on having my newest creation, but my youngest grandson was admitted in the hospital last night, so dinner is on hold for now.

Smells like Thanksgiving Chicken and Rice
Green Beans/Carrots
Yeast Rolls
Banana Split Cake

We still my have the meal, as it is quick to fix, but the cake is definitely on hold for another time.

Patty, I hope your grandson is okay, and your meal sounds marvelous!

For lunch, which is our main meal, I think I am going to do smothered omelets. I took this from a local brunch restaurant a few years ago. The omelet has sausage, ham, onions, mixed peppers, mushrooms for DH and I, and cheese (whatever I have which right now is cheddar and mozza). Then you "smother it" with hollandaise sauce. I make a light hollandaise and it works just fine. My guys love it, and so do I! It will be served with homemade hashbrowns and rye toast.

Clean out the fridge night. We have bits of:

Stroganoff
Pork tenderloin
Spaghetti
Chicken soup
Pasta
Oven roasted Potatoes
apple crisp
homemade vanilla ice cream
oatmeal choc chip cookies

I'm pretty sure everyone can find a full meal out of that. I'll make another giant salad to go with and put out a fruit plate to balance all the protein and carbs.

Oh my goodness do I sympathize. We've had blisteringly hot temps all last week and now I'm in a sweater.

Okay, total change when DH said he was really in the mood for pancakes. So, buttermilk pancakes, hashbrowns, back bacon and rye toast....on second thought, it isn't that much of a change!

For dinner tonight Dad and I will have sausage rolls and salad.

Tonight will be a recipe I haven't made in a long time. I was skimming through some old recipes and saw it the other day so it's on the menu for tonight:

Chicken breasts rolled up with prosciutto, provolone and sage and served with a marsala cream sauce.

Dessert will be apple squares with vanilla ice cream. I make this apple squares recipe instead of apple crisp because I never got used to the oatmeal on top. Besides, it's so delicious and so darn easy even I can't screw it up.

We had leftover chicken noodle soup with wheat and saltine crackers. Nothing fancy.

Market had lovely wild Alaskan salmon filets, so I picked up a couple & just baked them with butter, lemon, & chopped fresh dill. Served with round zucchini halves stuffed with orzo pasta & chopped fresh veggies.

thank you VB. that was a 3 lb or just under 3 lb roast. 4 people (2 kids, my hub and i) ate dinner and there is just enough for another meal. slicing thin also makes the difference, it makes people think they are getting more. trick i picked up working at the deli is the deli slice, fold and pile of the meat. LOL
